LIFE BEFORE DEATH by Matt Fremd_Review
Life Before Death by Matt Frend
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This new book proved to be amazingly more than I expected. Its theme is decision points-how the choices we make determine our future and affect our purpose in life, and on this planet. By the end I was reminded of the metaphysical facets of the Astrological sign Scorpio: that one has the choice to continue to be a scorpion, living on the surface, or to become an eagle and soar. In “Life Before Death” a coterie of “friends” (one might almost call them acquaintances at first, because their coming together seems so “accidental” or perhaps synchronous). Living together in a near-rural rental house, Mandy, Robyn, and Jane and Allen (who are life partners) travel, literally and figuratively, along with other travellers they meet in the process, through a wide and extensive variety of alternative lifestyles, basically exploring Australian counterculture as each searches for a meaning for her or his own life.
